Very, very plain: nothing suggestive to 
strangers about the name or place of resi- 
dence, but the amount of meaning con- 
veyed by that name and address to her 
friends, who are legion, is sufficient to in- 
sure her a well filled house throughout the 
Encampment. She is one of the very few 
women of her nationality in the country 
that owns and conducts such an establish- 
ment. Miss Louie is a typical Jewess, and 
while not related to the Baron across the 
pond, one would think from the Oriental 
splendor in which her house is furnished 
from pit to dome that she had free access 
to his millions. Miss L-OUIE has 12 of the 
most accomplished young ladies in the 
city from the East to assist her in receiv- 
ing her callers, any one of whom can per- 
form exceedingly well upon the piano, and 
among them are several vocalists of no 
mean ability.

630 TENTH ST., 


633 WEST ST. 

Owing to her increasing popularity, it 
has been absolutely necessary for Miss 
HATTIE to open the large mansion at 630 
Tenth street, which she has done at an en- 
ormous expense. She also continues the 
management of the cozy little cottage at 
633 West street. Miss Hattik being en- 
dowed with true Kentucky hospitality has 
rightly gained the distinction of being one 
of the most liberal entertainers in the 
South, she having donated liberally to the 
G. A. R. fund, being ample proof of her 
liberality. She has twelve of the prettiest 
young ladies in the South to entertain her 
visitors. She also keeps the best brands of 
Wine and Beer.

the oue owned and personally managed by 
herself. Her ladies being mostly of the 
same nationality, combined with the ele- 
gance of the furnishings and the swell 
manner in which they entertain callers, 
makes the Madame's one of the most popu- 
lar of the many resorts in the city.
